I had a tail-and-a-straw-hat-with-fox-ears jaunt today when I went out to run errands. It was a particularly fun run, especially when in Gamestop one gentleman said to me, "Okay, I just have to ask- Tails?"
"No," said I, fishing the keychain of my foxy Sonic series friend out of my pocket, "although I am a fan of him."
"I thought so," he said. "You were one tail short for that. So what's with the getup?"
"Do you know of the anthropomorphic fandom, or the 'furry' fandom in the shorthand?"
"Wow, really? So, did you go to last Anthrocon?"
That is actually the second time I've had that very conversation in a Gamestop.
